About Tooth-Colored Fillings
Cavities are one of the most common dental problems that develop when bacteria erode your enamel. In the past, cavities were filled with an amalgam material, a combination of metals, such as mercury or silver. Research has proven that amalgam fillings don't adhere well with the enamel and the mercury is hazardous to your general health. At Pipe Creek Dental Center in Pipe Creek, TX, Dr. Carolyn Walker offers tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin to fill cavities. Dr. Walker can also replace metal fillings with resin ones for a safer and better-looking result.
What to Expect with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Getting a filling with composite resin at Pipe Creek Dental Center is an easy procedure. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to make sure you're not in any pain. Stronger forms of sedation can be discussed to keep you relaxed during the procedure. Once you're prepared, the decayed enamel is removed using the Solea® dental laser. This state-of-the-art technology is quiet, fast, and sometimes eliminates the need for anesthesia. After the enamel is treated and the area is cleaned, the space will be replaced with the composite resin. It will be polished with composite resin so it matches your other teeth. You will be able to return to your day once your tooth-colored filling is done, but you might notice some sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages for a few days. You may take over-the-counter pain medication to minimize discomfort, but you should not experience any serious issues. Your filling should be kept clean by following a regular home care routine with daily brushing and flossing.

Dr. Walker worked with my school schedule and was able to see me as soon as possible. Dr. Walker and the staff made me feel at home before and after my procedure.
